Super-Flag Ride Report

Feb 27, 2007

Not everyone climbs on two wheels

With snow in the forecast, we deemed Super-Flag mandatory today. What a perfect one too, with temps around 41°F and a beaming sun!

Dave ran into some dérailleur troubles near the top, leading us both to conclude that it's high time we clean our bikes. Perhaps we should do a Frenzy bike wash on the quad.

Ran into a favorite author of mine today at the height of land (atop Super-Flag). Very cool!

I used to teach his work at New Hampshire and Pitt, and when not parsing Derrida's sentences for my own comprehension, I used to devour his books and short stories. Nice guy who can climb on the bike too!

As an armchair mountaineer, I feel obligated to remind you guys that tonight and tomorrow night the Banff Mountain Film Festival Tour is showing at the Boulder Theater. Some of the award winners this year are really inspiring, and some are just plain scenic! Get out to catch a showing if you can.
